Thank you to the publisher and Netgalley for an e-copy to review. All opinions are my own.

“A hacktivist and a cat café owner decode the friend zone in this romantic comedy from the author of Undercover Bromance.

Alexis Carlisle and her cat café, ToeBeans, have shot to fame after she came forward as a victim of a celebrity chef’s sexual harassment. When a new customer approaches to confide in her, the last thing Alexis expects is for the woman to claim they’re sisters. Unsure what to do, Alexis turns to the only man she trusts—her best friend, Noah Logan.

Computer genius Noah left his rebellious teenage hacker past behind to become a computer security expert. Now he only uses his old skills for the right cause. But Noah’s got a secret: He’s madly in love with Alexis. When she asks for his help, he wonders if the timing will ever be right to confess his crush.

Noah’s pals in The Bromance Book Club are more than willing to share their beloved “manuals” to help him go from bud to boyfriend. But he must decide if telling the truth is worth risking the best friendship he’s ever had.” (Goodreads)

Let’s just take a moment to appreciate the cover. I love it! The cat is just so adorable I want to snuggle it! Out of the covers, this one is my favorite.

I was really excited to continue on with this series. I was pleasantly surprised by the first book and even the second book had me hooked. This one was good in it’s own way but it was my least favorite and I didn’t enjoy it as much as the other two.

This book follows Alexis and Noah and their relationship from friends-to-lovers. This trope isn’t a favorite but I liked how close they were as friends. Each one would do anything for the other. When others didn’t understand their dynamic, they didn’t make much of it. They knew how important it was to be together even if that meant staying friends just in case the other didn’t feel the same.

I will say that they aren’t my favorite couple in the series and it may be because they just weren’t two of my favorite characters. I do remember Alexis from the second book but I actually don’t remember much about Noah. Where as with Gavin I could relate because he was married and Mack is just so lovable!

When it comes to the plot, there is a lot going on. An angry shop owner, organ transplants, figuring out the past, and finding the courage to make the next step. There is plenty of drama from all of them! Some were done better than others. One didn’t really have a conclusion and I wanted to know what the verdict was.

Since this is a part of the Bromance Book Club many old characters are still a part of the plot. I liked seeing them once again and they are always ready to help a fellow man in need!

If there is a next one, I hope it is about the Russian. I know he has an interesting story to tell and I felt like the author was hinting at him in this one! (P.S. It has been confirmed!)

Overall, it was still a good book but it just didn’t hit a high mark for me.
